(Newser) – George Zimmerman is in the dog house with … well, about half of America, but you can now count wife Shellie among that half. In a wide-ranging interview, Shellie tells an ABC News freelancer that she and George are going through marital problems, and that she's "going to have to think" about whether they'll remain married. She says she felt "very much alone" when George didn't show up for her sentencing yesterday.

Asked if she wanted him there, she replied, "I always want my husband's support." But the problems didn't begin then—Shellie revealed that she and her husband got in a fight the night before he killed Trayvon Martin, a fight serious enough that she'd left home to stay elsewhere. But the trial hasn't helped. "It's difficult to communicate with your spouse when you're under so much scrutiny," she said. Asked if George has a temper, she replied, "Not going to answer that."

"Marriage Is on the Rocks." I didn't know they had rocky beaches in Florida? She needs to trade that killer whale George in for someone more her size...like a sperm whale.

There is no doubt that this guy is a bit of a Neanderthal and a bit unstable; possibly a bit of a brute and since his court win, just a bit full of himself.
